Manny Pacquiao: Three Reasons He Can't Fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. Next

Now that we know that Floyd Mayweather Jr. will be fighting Puerto Rican legend Miguel Cotto on May 5 and that Manny Pacquiao will be taking on undefeated junior welterweight star Timothy Bradley on June 9 the entire online boxing universe can speculate on whether the long awaited super-fight between Money May and Pacman will finally take place sometime late in 2012. 

Maybe I've just been watching this all develop and unravel and develop and unravel again for too long and have grown cynical. But I just don't see it happening in 2012.

And if it doesn't happen in 2012, maybe it doesn't happen. Both men are at the point in their careers where letting another year go by without getting the fight made makes it increasingly unlikely to ever happen at all.
